It was the night of the prom, Alice came over and Chris showed her her dress.
"It's amazing, Chris!" She cried. Alice looked Chris up and down. "I love the suit, Chris!"
Chris smiled, proud of his work. He was wearing an aqua blue suit jacket with black lapels and a glittery black vest underneath. He had on matching aqua dress pants with a black tie, a white shirt and heavily polished black shoes, his hair neatly combed. I sniffed the air. "Chris, you smell like that crap you put in your hair. What did you use, a whole bottle?"
"It's called hair gel, Angie." He said cooly.
"I think you look very nice, Chris." Alice smiled. "I'm going to go change into This."Alice took the dress and went into our bathroom to change.
I held my dress and waited my turn. When Alice came out, Chris said, "Oh, you look so cute Allie!"
Alice blushed a little. "Thank you, Chris. I love this dress." Her dress was the same shade of teal as Chris's suit and ended about an inch below her knees. It had black glittery polka dots and it was completed with a black petticoat.
I changed into my dress and they both squealed when I came out of the bathroom. Oh, Angie! So cute! Blah Blah Blah.
We went to pick up Leo and Kathy. Leo was wearing a simple black suit with a dark purple tie to match Kathy's dress, which was probably the dressiest thing I would ever see him in. He almost looked nice. Kathy was wearing her purple dress and she had a large purple bow pinned to the side of her head.
They got into Alice's car and Leo said, "Nice suit, Chris."
Chris smiled proudly, "Thank you, I made it myself."
"Really?" Kathy said, "That's so cool!" Leo gritted his teeth jealously. Why did the guy who doesn't even like girls get all of her attention?
We soon arrived at our school gym. I must say, it was really awesome. We all went last year, but none of us had dates because we were all freshman. I don't know what it was about freshman last year, but none of the sophomore, juniors, etc wanted to be seen with us.
There were multicolored disco lights everywhere and modern music was playing. Chris's eyes lit up. "Alice! The dance competition is in 30 minutes!"
Alice grinned excitedly. "I'll go tell the DJ what song we want. You're going to dance with us, aren't you, Leo? Kathy?"
Leo and Kathy nodded. It then occurred to me that I was the only one without a date in our group (Well, Chris and Alice weren't a romantic couple, but they could be called a date). I felt a little left out, but I was sure I'd have fun anyway.
It was soon time for the dance competition. Alice and Chris were practically bouncing with excitement, then the feeling of being nervous flooded over Alice and she started to panic, Chris looking into her eyes with his hands on her shoulders, saying, "Don't worry, Alice. We practiced this for hours every day. We can do this!"
The co-captain of the football team, Jack, and his girlfriend were up first. Jack wore a black suit with a red tie and his girlfriend, Cloe, was wearing a red and black salsa dress. The song Heads Will Roll by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs came on.
A blood red light came on behind them, turning them into .
Off with your head, dance till you're dead. The music echoed through the gym creepily.
Heads will roll, heads will roll, heads will roll on the floor. I saw out of the corner of my eye, Chris's hand drew up to his throat.
Glitter on the west streets.... They started doing sharp turns and elaborate dance moves.
The men cried out, the girls cried out, the men cried out, the girls cried out, the men cried out, oh no..... Jack and Cloe circled around each other in a wide circle. She would fall, kicking her leg up into the air and he would catch her etc etc. They were good. Really good.
When they finished their dance, everyone clapped. It had been amazing. Leo, Chris, Alice, and Kathy stood with their mouths hanging open. "There is no way we can win now." Leo said.
Kathy clapped her hands together, trying to sound positive. "Well, don't think that way. We'll try our best and if we don't win, it's okay!"
I nodded, "Kathy's right. Good luck." Leo smiled at me in a non-Leo-like way, kind of like he was thinking about me, weird.
The judge's called out Chris's group name. "You're up." I said, "Good luck." Chris nodded and the four of them got into their positions in the center of everything, Chris and Alice back-to-back and Kathy and Leo back-to-back. Chris raised his arm dramatically and snapped his fingers. The lights turned from their blood red color to blue, showing their four
